Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Commonwealth of Ko-oren is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Sederatus Lemaritus with an even hand, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, ban on automobiles, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 13.975 billion Ko-orenites are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sedes Regis. The average income tax rate is 97.3%.

The enormous but inefficient Ko-orenite economy, worth a remarkable 1,064 trillion Koronas a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 76,204 Koronas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Party affiliation is just as irrelevant as campaign promises, cinemas play art-house movies to ever-shrinking audiences as film critics rule the industry, getting milk from the local corner store no longer requires donning advanced hiking gear, and Sederatus Lemaritus claims to be the epitome of family values. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ko-oren's national animal is the Dragonfly, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is various.

Ko-oren is ranked 2,431st in the world and 6th in Atlantian Oceania for Longest Average Lifespans, with 91.18 Years.
